Search engine wildcard - is it possible?

    Often when searching for stuff I'll get a result like mysearchterm.website.com. It looks like it's possible to get your site on a search results page no matter what the search term is without having to develop different subdomains and whatnot. One site that seems to do this is cutestats.com.

    This is what I'm looking to accomplish. Thoughts? Is it possible? Do you know how?

    That was a trick we used to do years ago where you'd serve up content regardless of what google requested. Using .htaccess you can spoof anything. Google got wise and started requesting nonsense strings and if you didn't return a 404 you were penalised.

    The current system probably checks that the request is a dictionary word and then spins content.
